Privacy policy/data protection for researchers, collaborators, suppliers and supporters.

REG is a not-for profit, international collaboration of clinicians, scientists and epidemiologists, working together to identify and fulfil the real-life research needs in respiratory medicine and advocating for change to drive improved patient management. Together, we promote high-quality, collaborative research, addressing questions unanswered by traditional randomised controlled trials, to integrate real-life evidence into clinical practice guidelines, policy and budgetary decision-making for the benefit of all stakeholders in respiratory medicine.

To ensure appropriate and timely collaboration we collect and use appropriate personal information which is collected either in person, over the phone, via emails or via the e-forms on our website.

When contacting us, you may be asked for personal information such as name, address, phone number, email address etc.

Information may be collected:

to enable us to involve you in future meetings and/or research activities

as part of the process of collaboration

but will only be used in those activities necessary to provide you with the information you have requested or require.

You will be advised of any additional purposes or uses at the time the information is collected.

Fair Processing Notice

Information which you have provided will be stored in secure databases. It will be used for the purposes stated when the information was collected.

Information Security

The website pages which are used to collect your personal details are digitally encrypted to ensure that the information being transmitted is secure and to encrypt that information which makes it virtually impossible to intercept that transfer.
